Description:

Therapists work individually with children to help prevent or resolve psycho-social difficulties experienced by a child as a result of their homelessness. Through talk and play therapy, and other support mechanisms, we help youth explore their emotions freely, express them safely and develop their ability to communicate them in the most appropriate way. We believe that giving children the opportunity to communicate enables them to gain more control over their own behavior.

We also support the mental health needs of parents by providing strength-based therapies and counseling services. We help parents achieve mental and emotional stability so that they can increase their connection to the child(ren) and cultivate a healthy environment in which them.
